Best format for external HDD?

I just picked up a 1TB drive.

I’m going to format it now.

I assume that Mac OS Extended (journaled) is the best formatting option to use with this as my external drive for the AppleTV, but I wanted to see if anyone else might suggest something different first.

Thanks.

It probably doesn’t matter for the vast majority of files. However, if you do wish to share this with a Windows users/machine at some point you’ll not be able to read it without a 3rd Party application. If this isn’t an issue, stick with the MAC format. I do for all of my external disks.
